"Osric - The foolish courtier who summons Hamlet to his duel with Laertes."

Is it really an "intrusion"? Or is Shakespeare using the character to lure Hamlet into accepting the challenge and fight Laertes?

??

Why has Shakespeare allowed the “intrusion” by Osric? and it is in
Act Five Scene Two


I don't really know like all he does is brag about Laertes and Hamlet tells him to put his hat on!

thanks Writeacher that does make sense it is not an "intrusion" becuase he serves a purpose in the play!
